Local Government: Standards

Volume 505: debated on Friday 5 February 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if he will place in the Library the combined Comprehensive Area Assessment and Comprehensive Performance Assessment results for each local authority. (314968)

This is an operational matter for the Audit Commission and I have asked the Chief Executive of the Audit Commission to write to the hon. Member direct.

Letter from Steve Bundred, dated 5 February 2010:

Your Parliamentary Question outlined above has been passed to me to reply.

The full Comprehensive Area Assessment (CAA) results dataset for each local authority and local area is held on the Oneplace website:

http://oneplace.direct.gov.uk/Pages/default.aspx

A list of the organisational assessment scores published on 9 December 2009 for each local authority (which form one element of the CAA results) is shown on the attached schedule. This can also be found on the Oneplace website:

http://oneplace.direct.gov.uk/SiteCollectionDocuments/oascores/2009_OA_scores_all_organisations.xls

Archived copies of the Comprehensive Performance Assessment (CPA) results from 2002-2008 can be found on the Audit Commission website:

http://www.audit-commission.gov.uk/localgov/audit/cpa/pages/default.aspx

As the CAA and CPA frameworks measure things differently, the results arising from the different frameworks should not be combined.

A copy of this letter has been placed in Hansard and the attached schedule has been deposited in the Library of the House.
